In a new video, Senator Portman praised the historic signing of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement into law by President Trump yesterday. Portman highlighted the economic benefits of USMCA. Portman has been a leading advocate for USMCA, which will create at least 176,000 new jobs, expand opportunities for agricultural trade, encourage new opportunities for auto jobs in America, and add a new section on digital trade to make online sales easier. He has been consistently supportive of this modernized trade agreement, which will replace the 26-year-old NAFTA. Portman received praise from U.S. Trade Representative Bob Lighthizer and other key leaders for his efforts to help pass this historic trade agreement.
